Come to solve the challenges of peacebuilding!

UN Youth of Finland organizes an ideathon from the 23rd September to 25th September. Young people will come together to solve current issues of peacebuilding. Every group will get their own problem, which they will respond with their youthful solution.
The best solution will be rewarded with 1000 euro prize, and every group will get the chance to develop their ideas with experts from the field. The event is organized in collaboration with Save the Children Finland, Felm, The Finnish Christian Peace Association and the Timeout Dialogue Foundation.

The event will start on Tuesday 20th September at 5-7pm with a training (via Zoom), where the participants get concrete tools and tips for creating their solution. We will go over the 2250 processes and the steps of planning the solution. Participation in the event doesn’t require previous experience on these topics – you only need creativity and interest towards peace-related issues.

The competition itself will start on Friday the 23rd at 5pm in the Allianssi house in Helsinki. The participants meet their team and hear the problem they are solving. On Saturday the 24th they have the full day to work on their solutions with good company and some snacks! In the evening, the solutions are brought to the judges and the best ones will be revealed and rewarded in the Youth Peace Week Seminar on Sunday.

You can participate in the Allianssi House in Helsinki or remotely, working with your group via Zoom. You are welcome with friends or alone – we will find to you a group, and the ideathon is a great place to meet new people interested in similar topics! The groups are divided according to their preferred themes. The competition is open to youth aged 15-29.
